Jaime, your health is more important than anything! Take some time for yourself, regroup, spend time with loved ones. I don't know if you're a person of faith? If you are, ask the Lord to give you peace and wisdom. Speaking from experience, I prayed myself through the whole Ph.D. process. I will include you in my prayers tonight. Take Care or yourself!!!
I agree with many of the statements listed; additionally, major congratulations on what you've accomplished thus far. I just graduated with a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership (June 2017) and I can attest to the fact that the relationship between the Ph.D. candidate and the dissertation committee can be extremely intense. Sometimes you feel like they are expecting you to jump through too many hoops, it can be frustrating and some people decide that they can't stand it and the quit the program. Please take this advise, follow their suggestions to the letter and try not to take any of it personally. I know this difficult. Also, keep in mind that your committee members have to sign off on your completed document. If your committee is anything like mine, that consideration looms high on their list. I wish you God's grace with your dissertation. Earning my Ph.D. was the happiest day of my life. My committee was tough. One of my committee members was a Ph.D. from Harvard University. Every draft I submitted, she sent me 4 pages of notes. Earning a Ph.D. is an enormous task!!!! Hang in there! You'll be so glad once you've completed the entire process
